One of our club members, Carroll Worsnup, is a PE coach at Sunset elementary school in Glendale. The school is kindergarten through sixth grades. She asked for and received a grant to purchase pickleball equipment. But, to fully implement and teach the class she is in need of approximately 10 more paddles. It would be helpful for when teaching if every child had a paddle and the grant money though it provided money for nets, balls and wood paddles, she still could use the ten more paddles. If you have an old, unused paddle you could donate if would be appreciated. Don’t most of us wish we started to play the sport we love in elementary school! If you have a paddle to donate you can give it to Caroll personally or give to any board member. You know, the ones with the red and white name tags.
I know our club has been very generous with donating paddles in the past. I’ll thank you now because i’m sure that generosity will continue.
